32nd Annual Artscape 2013
Mount Royal Avenue and North Charles Street
I will be going on Saturday July 20th but anyone is welcome to go to the festival anytime it is still running.
Date: July 20, 2013 (Festival runs July 19-21)
Time: 11am – 4pm (Festival runs into the nite with different performances and events throughout the City)
Mount Royal is where the Meyerhoff Theather, Lyric Opera House and the renown Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) are located. In past years the Theaters offered free performances, or were open to the public for backstage tours.
The street is blocked off for performance art, artists marketplace, and you can’t miss the famous Art Car Show and CARavan..
“Artscape is America's largest free arts festival, attracting 350,000+ attendees over three days. Artscape features 150+ fine artists, fashion designers and craftspeople; visual art exhibits on and off-site, including exhibitions, outdoor sculpture, art cars, photography and the Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize; incredible live concerts on outdoor stages; a full schedule of performing arts including dance, opera, theater, film, experimental music and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra; family events such as hands-on projects, demonstrations, competitions, children's entertainers and street theater; and a delicious, international menu of food and beverages that is available throughout the festival site. Artscape's total economic impact on Baltimore City is $25.97 million.”
Bring cash for the street vendors (many now accept credit cards)
Bring money for food or drink.
Parking Garage: Fees vary, there are road closures and detours, so you may want to visit:
HOW TO GET THERE:
Drive, or use public transportation.
Baltimore is accessible by AMTRAK, MTA Bus/ Light Rail
Safety first, I always suggest women never travel alone on public transportation.
